Spring Is Finally Here!

Without any enormous painting jobs hanging over my head, I feel a real sense of freedom to goof off and have fun.  We have an annual all-town tag sale and Historic Society huge book sale in April and my sister and I had fun checking everything out.  I've also been snapping pictures of beautiful spring-flowering shrubs, trees and flowers.
Lovely old Greek Revival house around the corner.

Forsythia bordering my neighbor to the north.  Love this color.

A beautiful flowering cherry tree down the road.

Tulips at Elizabeth Park.
Gorgeousness.  I love red tulips.
Grape and regular hyacinth in front of the wisteria.
Cute little violas self-sown from last year.
Parrot tulips.
The wisteria survived the porch re-roofing.
It seems our cold winter really helped the flowers.  The peonies are loaded with buds and tulips bloomed that hadn't in several years.  The wisteria and lilacs had a decent year as well.

Happy Spring!
